Board Leadership

Board Leadership

One of the keys to the foundation’s success is the leadership of our 180 trustees. These leaders in business, education and public service represent every region of the state and help promote the foundation’s mission and its programs. Among the trustees is a core management committee, which oversees the organization’s budget and administration, and an executive committee, which oversees programming.
